Doom Guy: Life in First Person by John Romero

emotional hopeful informative inspiring lighthearted reflective medium-paced


I grew up with Carmack's Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake so hearing more about their creation and the man behind them was fascinating.  He's a reflective and smart guy, clearly still unhappy with some of the choices made in his life but remaining stoic. It's a difficult book to recommend if you're not a fan of video games, and particularly the 80s/90s PC gaming scene as he does get into the weeds frequently but I enjoyed it way more than I expected.
